Which reminds me, back in August I investigated then-current wip/s:

Two branches (only in qtbase) are done with and can be killed:

One branch is dead but should perhaps be archived (i.e. moved to an

qtquickcontrols, qtbase).

I also observe wip/qtquickintergration in qt3d, which is clearly a typo
for wip/qtquickintegration (which contains every commit of the typo-ed

Ossi, would you take care of those ?

Here's the list of all (other) currently live wip/s (in which modules)
